Synopsis

Franz Peter Schubert by Wendy Thompson

Among the torch-bearers in the funeral pocession of Ludwig van Beethoven was a small, stocky young man of thirty, with curly dark hair and spectacles. For Franz Schubert, carrying the torch was simply an act of private and public homage; but we can now see that it had a far deeper significance. The torch of Beethoven's genius had been passed on to Schubert - the last great Viennese composer of the late 18th century. This illustrated biography of Schubert's brief, but astonishing, career is set against the colourful background of Metternich's Vienna. Music extracts include some of his most memorable melodies, among them the Unfinished Symphony , Rosamunde , the C Major Quintet and songs such as Heindenroslein .
